  • Stephanie has written and edited a myriad of profile pieces and food reviews.
  • Her favorite party trick is casually whipping up a fresh batch of the best guacamole that anyone has ever tasted.
  • She made her literary magazine debut with a personal essay titled "On Slovenian Roots," inspired by her immigrant grandparents and close-knit extended family. (She even shared her Staramama's beloved palačinke recipe.)


Stephanie joined Static Media as a news editor for Chowhound in 2023, which has furthered her knowledge about cooking and food. As a writer and editor she specializes in telling true stories. She currently serves as the editor-in-chief of both SCAN Magazine and The Connector, the student publications at SCAD Atlanta.
